A remarkable game reserve/estate, it is vast and the scenery is spectacular. I was the only guest, no problem for Jo and Sean they arranged a vehicle for me, this was special as I could go wherever I wanted. A very memorable visit. The Stoneyvale lodge is well worth the visit, the cottage accommodation is exactly like the website, perfect, and superior to many upmarket lodges I have visited. The cottages have everything one needs including healthy supply of fire wood. Jo and Sean are brilliant hosts. I really look forward to visiting the estate again, one of those that you do go back to.

We had the opportunity to stay at Stonevale for two nights as a family. What a much needed break is was, away from the city life. Very relaxed and quiet atmosphere in the bush. The cottage have everything that you need and is very modern. Thanks Jo for accomodating me and my family. Will see you again in future. Francois

What an amazing bush break, it was just what we needed! Thank you to Jo and Sean - you made us feel so comfortable. The accommodation was perfect, along with a game drive with Sean. His knowledge of the bush and animals is outstanding. We both have never experienced something quite like it. We have learnt so much. Our stay was nothing short of perfect Thank you again! We will definitely be back.
